Recent sightings.

It is presumed that the Glossy Ibis has departed from the Breech Pool area as it was last seen on Monday ( I had my best views on that day). Early morning saw a movement of Meadow Pipits and Skylarks and there were numerous Reed Buntings on the Spit bushes and a couple of Chiffchaffs. A few House Martins and Swallows flew west and during the afternoon 6 Brent Geese flew in and landed on the off shore spit for half an hour before continuing their journey westwards.
Wader numbers are increasing with Dunlins,Turnstones and Ringed Plovers outnumbering the Knot and Grey Plover.
The forecast is for a change in the calm weather we have experienced recently so maybe we can expect some changes in the avifauna!
